Yeah, it's not really a color thing. You just want to stay away from the oldest runs with the misaligned overmold that sits too low on the bead. If you're flipping Wizards, then the newest Ions are the ones for you.

Co-owner of page picked up a med. ion yesterday and it reminded me a lot of the pure but somehow better which I imagine would be the case with axis vs fuse but not sure there is a NEED for them. And any difference between the opaque or translucent runs?
Can't help you with the Axis (yet ) but as a Fuse and Pain thrower myself, I use Ions for all drives and approaches while my Summits are restricted to putts only. Once you drive an Ion, it's hard to drive any other putter.

really?! feel is odd but Ive had the bowfly etc and nothing like that so maybe worth a shot just figured a soft would be more for putting

I drive with soft Ions multiple times a round and they perform quite well.

I prefer my soft ion for driving because of the extra grip.

Soft Ions glide better/farther than the mediums, but the mediums hold a line a little tighter. I've tried to go exclusively to one or the other a couple of times, but I just end up wanting both in the bag.

Just got my first soft ion...will report back when I get to play.

But they are very nice for putting,more concerned about off the tee!

I'm not sure what it means, but I've got like a 10:1 ratio of metal hits to aces with my Ions. I think it's because they are usually dropping down towards the basket rather than line driving into the chains.

Just ordered my first run axis, should be here by Tuesday or wednesday. I can't wait to get out and give it a try. I hope it's one of those discs that replaces multiple mids from my bag, it's getting a bit heavy.

I've nailed the basket three times in my first 5 rounds with the ion, I'll get that ace eventually
